I just picked up & set up my new Shuttle. The scoop:
- I wanted a quiet machine
- I wanted a 64-bit AMD processor
- I wanted a small machine
- I wanted a near portable, but something something without all the compromises of a laptop -- especially support for a good monitor & keyboard; something suiable for taking to a conference or vacation
- I wanted great graphics --- perhaps for a game, but more likely for...
- rapid photo processing
- Revit use
- CAD/CAM use
Price is a fraction of the price of a comporable, but bigger and louder, machine from HP or (ugh) Dell. Better yet, all the components are name components & the system is designed as a system -- its not a bucket holding whatever components happend to have the best prices the week I ordered.
Of course, I'd not be quite so happy if I'd not also picked up a nice Eizo monitor to complement the Shuttle.
